Thomas on POY race: ‘Give BK the trophy’

September 12th, 2018

Last year, Justin Thomas captured the PGA Championship en route to being named the PGA Tour's Player of the Year. This time he believes the same combination belongs to Brooks Koepka – even before the FedExCup is decided. With the top 30 players enjoying a rare off week this week, the PGA Tour sent out a tweet Tuesday to showcase potential Player of the Year nominees, noting that the “race is far from decided.” Included were four players who each won three times this season: Thomas, Dustin Johnson, Bubba Watson and Bryson DeChambeau.
